When “Experience” Is “The Past”

Published by at 8:52 am under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

Lamest political spin of the night from the Obama camp (Biden especially). The Dems tried to claim all the experience John McCain was “just the past”. In fact, a lot of the commentary was a joke. The talking heads at CNN were especially lame.  But O’Reilly was showing off his double digit IQ when he ranted to Karl Rove it was not enought to have written news reports about the financial crisis – because O’Reilly doesn’t read the news!  He has to be told.  It was embarrassing. And Hannity is just sounding incoherent. He repeats ad nauseum his little sound bites as if they carry and meaning. When you speak in sound bite, you speak in strange tongues (that goes for left and right).

I have to say America is so fed up with the Political Industrial Complex the hold (and tiresome) hands with their endless pre-debate quips and post debate quips are pathetic.  America to the talking heads – we can interpret what happened just fine, thanks.

As I said below Obama was rattled, angry, defensive and many times rude. His zingers looked like arrows made out of limp noodles, they just died before the got half way to McCain. He was very much the “me too” candidate, from “John McCain is right, …” to the just horrible “I have a bracelet too (let me read it here a second)”.

Look, when you are trying to turn “Experience” into “The Past” you are losing. Is “Experience” to be ridiculed when you go to get major surgery? Or are you willing to let someone experiment on your body a little? If you want experience when someone tries to excise a cancer from your body, why not when someone is trying to excise one from your country? 

Obama has nothing but gaffes coming out of this as memories. McCain came out looking like an old salty scrapper.

    Decades ago I was watching an important speech by the president. Afterwards Chet Huntley and David Brinkley and others discussed the speech and broke it down and explained each paragraph. Then they summarized their discussion of the speech. Their summary was not anything like what the president said. They had obliterated his whole speech and inserted their idea of what they evidently wanted him to say. I couldn’t believe it. That was the last time I watched these jerks spew their garbage. I lost all respect for them.

    The polls as of this morning are showing Obama as the winner. And that many undecideds have shifted to Obama.

    Weird…especially in light of many post-debate analysis favor MCCain or a draw.

    The only people surprised by that would be those who believe the cheerleading at this blog. Next AJ Strata will be telling us that Sarah Palin did well in that CBS interview. It is one thing to be partisan but to only see the positives on your side ruins your credibility. Frankly it is typical of Americans. They are like children with their ‘think positive’ mindset.

    O-Bomba! The man flamed.

    Yeah right. Obama wasn’t great but he was more coherent than McCain – not that that is saying much. McCain was so condescending: “You don’t have the knowledge…” He said that several times to Obama. He sounded elitist. Obama should’ve mentioned the McCain aid, Randy Scheunemann, who’s been a paid agent for the dictatorial Georgian regime. No wonder McCain wants to start a war with Russia.
